Benefits of being a Multimodal Transport Operator:
Accreditation with FMC (USA)
The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) is charged with regulating the US international ocean transportation system. Being accredited with the FMC is of immense value for Swift Cargo as it enables us to deliver shipments faster & seamlessly.
Certification with CT-PAT (Customs Trade - Partnership against Terrorism)
- When a particular shipment is selected to be inspected, the process is faster if the shipment is being imported by a CT-PAT certified US importer.
- The containers/trailers can be moved ahead of any non CT-PAT containers/trailers awaiting exam, regardless of how long they’ve been there.
- Overall reduction in time and cost of getting cargo released by US Customs.
- Expedited clearance across the borders between the US & Canada/US & Mexico via dedicated FAST lanes.
- Eliminates carrier fees, penalties, fines, and container renting space.
When cargo is imported, Customs and Border Protection Force assigns an undisclosed risk value to each shipment; assessing such risk factors as: country of origin, supplier, type of product, developed intelligence. On the basis of this risk value, cargo is selected for examination by the customs authority. When a CT-PAT certified company imports cargo, CBP deducts points from the risk value. This results in the imported cargo being placed in a preferred category.
Benefits of CT-PAT Certification:
- Worldwide recognition as safe, secure & compliant business partner in international trade & trade facilitation by foreign Customs administration with whom India enters into a Mutual Recognition Agreement/Arrangement (MRA)
- Facility of Direct Port Delivery (DPD) of import Containers and/or Direct Port Entry (DPE) of Export Containers
- Prioritized processing and clearance of goods at all seaports & airports
- Deferred payment of duties
- Reduction in dwell time & related costs
- A lower Risk Score in risk analysis systems when profiling
- Fast tracking of refunds and adjudications
The Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) Programme enables Indian Customs Administration to identify Swift Cargo as a safe & compliant business entity, besides providing us with enhanced & assured facilitation.
Swift Cargo is accredited as an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO), compliant with the provisions of National Customs law and approved by or on behalf of the national administration in compliance with World Customs Organization (WCO) or equivalent supply chain security standards.
